Meaning of Dreadlocks: a Rastafarian hairstyle in which the hair is washed but not combed and twisted while wet into tight braids or ringlets hanging down on all sides.


The word dreadlock back in the days used to scare people, it used to have so many labels and taboos. I’m one person who honestly never enjoyed doing new things with my hair, I treated my hair like my skin….don’t touch…its fine the way it is as an afro.

During my first year of varsity, I decided that a change was needed and I opted for dreadlocks. My dad was not impressed at all, but he couldn’t say anything because I had already changed my hair when he saw me.

Here is a list of the top 6 dreadlock hairstyles I think are pretty awesome:

The Loc Petals

You can get the petaled look when you fold your dreadlocks into petal-like shapes and then secure them with pins. The only problem will be trying to sleep without ruining the petal, but you can overcome that with a satin bonnet to sleep in.

Petal Locks

High Bun

This hairstyle is an easy DIY hairstyle you can do in the comfort of your home. You do not need to spending money and time at a salon.

Loose Ties

After a treatment at the salon, let your dreadlocks hang loose. That’s one of the best ways of taking care of your hair.

Loose Dreadlocks


This hairstyle is common for people with very long dreadlocks but wants to keep them short without cutting. Worms are basically locks rolled up to look short.



Spirals are meant to keep your locks curly as you let them breathe. You simply curl your locks using rollers, stay under the dryer for 20-30 minutes and then untie.


I hope that you guys enjoyed this and now have cool ideas for your next hairstyle.
